To compile modules you also need to have the kernel source code on 
your computer.  r1869 only works with kernel 2.4.20 or later.

I think I upgraded to glibc and gcc and associated compiling packages all 
from Slackware 8.1.  See the BL archives for a list of what you need.

I downloaded the kernel code from the internet.  There is now a 2.4.33.
My modules might work with it if you insmod -f (force insertion).

I am delighted you got both cards working.  How fast can you download 
kernel source code with the gigabit card?

The fastest download I have achieved (via a friend's comcast account) is 
about 1/2 MB/sec.  Why do you want to use such a fast NIC?
